Actually, they presented it via one of those “closed door” meetings that only VIPs have access to. Or something along those lines because everyone can be a sneaky ninja these days. But… that’s besides the point.
Point is this: Square Enix has a new real time tech demo thingy called Luminous Studio, which looks very pretty (hardly a surprise), and we have some screens (*UPDATE 2* and a video) to prove it after the break.
What could these shots imply? The next major Final Fantasy title? A new graphical engine for upcoming games, if not “next-gen” titles to be precise? Tetsuya Nomura’s next feature length film starring Gackt and a mountain load of zippers and shiny leather boots? Your guess is as good as ours!
One thing’s for sure — Square Enix loves to hide behind closed doors and tease on something big. Or not depending on your history with the house that built Chocobos and Haley Joel Osment-voiced protagonists/antagonists.
[Update 1] More screens have been made their way to the interwebs thanks to Famitsu.
[Update 2] Video! A must watch, simply because it is real time and not pre-rendered!
